We’ve said it time and time again that diabetes doesn’t make any exceptions for anyone. In an interview with David Letterman on the Late Show, Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe award-winner, Tom Hanks, announced his most recent type 2 diabetes diagnosis.
Dealing with high-blood sugar levels since the age of 36, his doctor was quick to let him know that he “graduated” and now had type 2 diabetes. Finding humor and the silver lining of his diagnosis, Tom let the audience know that despite his diagnosis it’s still a controllable disease. However, it did mean he would have to “pull off a level of actorly weight control to rival Christian Bale and Robert De Niro.” Take it from Tom, you are the boss of your diabetes don’t let it dictate your life!Whizzco
